England will be touring Sri Lanka for the first time since 2014 and will be up against a much weaker opposition than the one they faced last time. The Sri Lanka players will be hoping to benefit of playing the No.1 ranked ODI team ahead of the next year’s World Cup. England, on the other hand, would be wanting to gain experience of playing on slow tracks which they could find at home in the World Cup as the tournament progresses.
All the approaching milestones for the players ahead of the Sri Lanka-England ODI series:
98 – Tom Curran has taken 98 wickets in List A cricket and needs two more wickets to complete 100. He took those wickets in only 64 List A matches. Sri Lanka’s Nuwan Pradeep also has taken exactly 98 wickets in List A cricket so far.
150 – Moeen Ali (149) is one wicket away from completing 150 scalps in List A cricket. Another England all-rounder Liam Dawson (143) needs seven more wickets for the same milestone.
